Nancy Kerrigan will work as a figure skating analyst for NBC during the Sochi Olympics, according to Channel 7 News Boston.
Lynnfield resident and Stoneham native will not be doing color commentary on competitions,
but will contribute to coverage and appear on the “Today” show and
NBC is also planning to air a 45-minute report about the attack she suffered at the Lillyhammer Olympics in 1994 at the hands of rival figure skater Tonya Harding’s ex-husband and her bodyguard. Kerrigan, a two-time figure skating medalist, has rarely spoken about the attack in public.
According to NBC corresponded Mary Carillo, that attack and the aftermath “was the beginning of reality television.”
Kerrigan told 7 News that being attacked is not something you celebrate, and was reluctant to take part in the story but trusted that she would be treated fairly in the story.
